1. Teach kids math for the sake of math. Show them ways that math is beautiful and interesting for its own sake.

2. Utilize activities that are fun for students, like the ones in Karen’s Adventures with Mathematics books. These can allow students to play, while still learning important mathematics concepts.

3. Incorporate elements of flipped classrooms as much as possible in my classes.

4. Ask deep, meaningful questions that make students THINK.

5. Make math fun. I had such a blast at Math in Action. I want my students to feel like that in my classes. ]]>
